The Sequoia Union Elementary School Parent Teacher Club (PTC) invites the community to attend its Annual Fall Carnival, set for 5:30-9pm on Saturday, September 26.
This year’s event, dubbed “Small Town Hoedown,” promises traditional family fun, including bingo, a delicious deep-pit beef dinner, carnival games, a photo booth and much more. A vast silent auction, made possible by the generosity of local business owners, will also be available for those who want to do some early holiday shopping.
Sequoia Union is a kindergarten through eighth grade single-school district in Lemon Cove. Approximately 325 students attend the school.
The carnival is hosted by a dedicated group of parents whose only goal is to raise funds for the school’s field trips, performing arts programs, National History Day competitors and school assemblies. Last year, PTC’s efforts raised $25,000 during the carnival. This year, the goal is $27,000.
Sequoia Union students travel the state on some of the most enriching field trips possible. Some destinations include California’s historic missions, Hospital Rock in Sequoia National Park, a local dairy, SCICON, and a tour of the state Capitol in Sacramento.
The delicious from-scratch dinner benefits the 8th grade class, which is raising funds toward their three-day tour of San Francisco at the end of the school year. Dinner tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children.
